Amount: $25,000 (and medallion)
Deadline: December 17, 2018
Description: The Award for Lifetime Achievement is granted to established Canadian artists who have made a marked contribution to the performing arts in Canada, and in some cases, internationally, and who have developed a significant body of work. The awards are conferred in the following six categories: Broadcasting (radio and television); Classical Music; Dance; Film; Popular Music; Theatre.
Eligibility: The Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement is open to professional artists who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada and who have achieved a major, influential body of work can be nominated.
